To determine who made free throws at the better rate, we can calculate the free throw percentage for each person.

For Jay: [ \text{Free throw percentage for Jay} = \frac{\text{Number of successful free throws by Jay}}{\text{Total number of attempted free throws by Jay}} \times 100 ]

For Kim: [ \text{Free throw percentage for Kim} = \frac{\text{Number of successful free throws by Kim}}{\text{Total number of attempted free throws by Kim}} \times 100 ]

Then, we compare their free throw percentages to determine who had the better rate.

For Jay: [ \text{Free throw percentage for Jay} = \frac{8}{10} \times 100 = 80% ]

For Kim: [ \text{Free throw percentage for Kim} = \frac{25}{45} \times 100 \approx 55.56% ]

Since Jay has a free throw percentage of 80%, which is higher than Kim's approximately 55.56%, Jay made free throws at the better rate.
